HOLD YOUR PREMIE are the words that every parent of a baby born too early longs to hear! Dr. Bergman's research and astounding DVD for professionals has changed the way NICUs facilitate skin-to-skin and breastfeeding. Jill Bergman is an educator and designed a parent version in a DVD as well as a companion book.
Gets right to the heart of parents concern and fears of delivering too soon. Great scenes of a full term African baby going to the breast by himself at delivery and another showing this after a cesarean birth! Not only gives parents permission to hold their infant skin-to-skin but both tell why it is vital for the baby to not be left alone. The DVD shows how to do it easily along with breastfeeding. Jill talks parents through their emotional turmoil, on to practical things to do, empowering them to become central to the team for their baby's care. Helps parents to understand the premie and how differently they feed and why protecting sleep is important. Breast milk is best: Pumping and breastfeeding are beautifully described for the premature infant. At last a take home book just for parents to reinforce the DVD and why they need to be in the NICU and hold their premie skin-to-skin. Pages for notes and charts to help them chart their course in the book.
